- We can order this
A stunning visual guide through the supernatural world of Castlevania, following the Belmont family's everlasting struggle against the forces of darkness!
Castlevania is a multi-generational video game series developed and published by Konami. The franchise was first released in 1986, but has evolved from a side-scrolling platformer into a full-scale adventure series - and has sold over 20 million copies worldwide.
Rebooted in 2010, the Castlevania: Lords of Shadow series explores Gabriel Belmont's fall from grace as he is drawn into a world of demonic forces and supernatural terrors. Set in 1047 AD, the game boasts extraordinarily rich and stylised visuals, fusing gothic imagery with a deeply archaic medieval vibe.
Combining concept art, game stills and promotional images from both Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and the upcoming Lords of Shadow 2, as well as the interquel Mirror of Fate, the book will take readers on a visual guide through the supernatural world of Castlevania, following the Belmont family's everlasting struggle against the forces of darkness.
